Descriptions (from various sources):
It is one of the rising stars of our red petiole hybridizing program.
This very special hosta resembles a bird in flight.
It is a very waxy blue H. kikutii in form with rich cranberry colored petioles.
The leaf margins gently undulate, effortlessly gliding on a warm summer breeze.
It blooms in August with purple flowers on arching scapes and sets seed easily.
Waxy, blue hostas with rich cranberry petioles are a rare treat when you discover them and infatuation quickly leads to desire.
Late blooming but it is an easy plant with which to hybridize.
